Marjana, a 39-year-old married mother of four, lives in the suburbs of a little town in the North West Albania. The age of her children ranges from 3 to 14 years old. This is her first time requesting a loan. She wants to build a stable for the pigs with this loan.

In addition to her livestock activity that she has been practicing these past five years, she’s been making traditional embroideries for sale as well. She sells them in the market and gift stores in the capital city.

Marjana is the only financial provider for her family and proudly express that. She hopes that lenders at Kiva will provide her the financial help she’s requested to build the stable.
